Name: La Ruta del Sol
Location: Aranjuez, Madrid
This restaurant is located on the outskirts of Aranjuez and is set in the coutryside which is the kind of places that I like. It has a nice and modern bar as you walk in, an indoor restaurant which is very cosy and outside they have an outdoor restaurant that seats upto 100 people which is ideal for celebrations, weddings and comunion celebrations.
The service is excellent, they are very attentative and as soon as we sat down, the waiter came with a plate of fried chistorra and rice morcilla for us to share whilst he took our drinks order. A glass of red wine for me!
We decided to opt for the €12 daily menu which looked good!
The first plate was a deliciously tasting salad with caramelized onion, balsamic vinegar and feta cheese. Not my usual type of salad but I can honestly say that even though it was sweet, it was really delicious, not even a scrape left over on the plate!
For the second plate I opted for an autumn/winter dish as the weather now calls for this type of food so I chose a bowl of stewed of beans and morcilla. Very tasty indeed, I could have eaten this plate 5 times over as it´s the type of food that I really enjoy!
For my third plate I chose the churrasco which is one of my favourite meats and it turned out just as I expected it to, delicious, and also served with chips and a tomato, onion and pepper sauce.
For pudding I chose the Ferrero Rocher chocolate cake, and what a cake it was, I don´t usually have desert but as I love Ferrero Rocher chocolates I just had to try this cake, very satisfying indeed, I was really stuffed after!
So all in all I had a very good experience at this restaurant and will definately go back! Good food, good price and good service!
